Avery Elle Party Pals

Happy hump day crafty friends! For those of you that follow my blog, you will undoubtedly know how much I love a good critter. So when I saw this Party Pals set by Avery Elle, I had to have it!

My best childhood friend has a birthday this week and I have a standing tradition that I make one card from my husband and I and one card from the family pets (strange, but true). So on this one, I decided to feature the cats from the set and turn them into my cat Tigrou (grey tabby) and her cat Cooper (orange tabby).


To start, I knew I wanted to add some of the new Lawn Fawn 6x6 Really Rainbow Petite paper, I love this paper pad I am on my second already... So, that made my color choices easy enough!  My friends favorite color is purple, so that also had to be a major element. 


I stamped my images using my Misti with Lawn Fawn jet black Ink and colored the Happy sentiment also from the Party Pals set in rainbow order and used three of the same colors for the balloons in the same set. I then colored my little guys (all Copics for these images) in tabby fashion.


I used the co-ordinating dies and then took my piece of Neena Solar White and die cut the border with a Lawn Fawn stitched border die (cut off the excess of the A2 size panel). I then used a small piece of the rainbow card stock and glued that to the card base. I then glued fun foam on the back of the white panel and placed it on my card base.  I glued all of my elements only to have forgotten to stamp the black birthday sentiment. Thankfully I had used a full piece of fun foam therefore making the stamping a lot smoother.  I used 3m foam tape for the images and added some rainbow gems by Lucy's little things.

Thanks for taking the time!
